Opening Reception for Hope for Spring Exhibition


What’s Happening?

Like any Texan, the Neill-Cochran House Museum loves bluebonnets. As spring approaches and we shake off the cold, the one thing we can all count on are the beautiful fields of blue that will pepper the Texas landscape. To celebrate the beauty of the Texas State Flower, the Neill-Cochran House Museum is displaying a collection of local art inspired by the bluebonnet, in Hope for Spring: The Flower of Texas.
 
The artwork will be placed before a jury who will determine three winners and an honorable mention. The winners will be announced at the Opening Reception on March 13, 2021. The Opening Reception is free and open to the public. Doors will open at 5:30 PM, winners will be announced at 6:30 PM. Still Austin will also be onsite providing delicious cocktails. The reception will take place outside, and crowd size will be monitored to ensure proper social distancing can be maintained. The Museum also requests that all visitors, speakers, and staff wear a mask at all times while on site.
